Hi everyone. I went out at 5pm for a bike ride. It was warm and windless. There was still plenty of light and also lots of little bugs. There were also lots of people. It was one of the busiest times I’ve seen the walking/cycling track. I worked out that the bike ride is a 5km round trip from home and I do that in half an hour.  It sounds quite good – a 5k bike ride. That’s all I can manage anyhow. The light is quickly disappearing but I am thankful for the lovely temperature. I will try to soak it up as often as possible.

After my walk yesterday which was 2.5k, I was very stiff for the rest of the day. Serves me right for not doing more over the last 2 weeks.

Bye for now.

Autumn Walk

Hi there. Today is ANZAC Day and what a lovely day for the march. This morning I went on a walk on my usual route by the river. There weren’t many people about and it was nice to pass another walker or cyclist. At 7.30am it was much colder than what I’ve been used to and my ears and fingers hurt with the frosty feel. Looks like early walks will require hats and gloves.

I arrived home to a cooked breakfast, what a treat.

Have a good day.

I can’t resist the resistance exercises

Hi there. I did my half hour workout today, which I enjoyed mainly because Seinfeld had just come on. I didn’t really want to do the exercises, but I remember my doctor saying how important weights and resistance exercises are. I’m only doing them once a week at the moment. But that’s still more than what I was doing four months ago. If only I could go for a walk now. It’s just gorgeous outside. But I can’t get the kids to come with me. I will just have to try to convince them. Wish me luck.

Autumn Exercise

Hi everyone. Well after a week of some very unappealing weather, I know that the real challenge for me is keeping up exercise when winter hits. Being the school holidays has put a stop to my freedom of choosing what to do when, and coupled with the cold wet weather I have been rather slack.

Yesterday however was lovely. The kids and I walked to the movies. Then today I rode my bike while the girls scooted. We got quite hot. With no rain forecast we can expect more of this lovely weather and more activity!

Keep active!

What a walk!

Hi to anyone who is still reading.

This week I did a bike ride, mowed the lawn, walked to the supermarket and pulled my rather heavy trolley home, walked to the shops and this morning I walked the neighbour’s dog, dropped her back home then went on a 40 minute walk on the track by the river.  I do something each day, whether big or small. But I really had the urge to go on a good walk and today I did that. If I don’t do a solid walk every couple of days, my body seems to crave it. I feel good now. Hope you’re all enjoying this gorgeous autumn weather. Bye for now.
